The Kathleen Ferrier Memorial Scholarship Fund was founded in 1953 in memory of the contralto from Lancashire who died at the tragically young age of 41 and whose career as a singer lasted just 12 years.

On her death, an appeal was launched by Sir John Barbirolli, Roy Henderson, Gerald Moore, Sir Malcolm Sargent and Hamish Hamilton, and further funds were raised from a book, Kathleen Ferrier – a Memoir, put together by some of her friends and colleagues.

The purpose of the fund was to make an annual award to a young British singer sufficient to cover the cost of a year’s study and general support. The first competition was held in 1956 and it has continued to provide a few outstandingly talented young singers each year since then with the opportunity of making a start in what is a most difficult and demanding career.

The 2019 competition will be held at Wigmore Hall on 24 and 26 April. Preliminary auditions will be held in mid March at Henry Wood Hall, London SE1 4HU.

Deadline for 2019 competition applications:

  • Singers – 31 January 2019
  • Accompanists – 28 February 2019
